Comedy shows and classes outside in the heart of downtown

Bigger than a building.

While Arcade continues to monitor public health and safety news to determine when we will welcome guests back into our building, the organization will in the meantime pivot to outdoor classes and shows. With the comfort and safety of our patrons, artists, and staff leading all decisions, we hope a temporary reimagining of our normal operation restores joy, laughter and a sense of community in downtown Pittsburgh where we left it.

We are currently producing one comedy-variety show a night, twice a week, running approximately 45-50 minutes:

  • Sunday at 7PM
  • Monday at 7PM

We encourage guests to purchase their tickets online, in advance, as well as review our safety guidelines. We will be abiding by all state and local guidelines, including mask-wearing at all times. Read more.

Shows and classes located at
The Trust Oasis
133 Seventh Street

Located next door to Proper Brick Oven Pizza, across the street from the Greer Cabaret Theater.
